T-Mobile marked two coverage milestones today, saying it has now covered 150 million people with its mid-band 5G and 300 million with its low-band network.
"300 million people covered is a huge milestone for us," says Neville Ray, the company's president of technology. "While our competition still seems to struggle with what they're going to do with their 5G footprints, even with DSS, we continue on our march."
According to T-Mobile, its ultra capacity network has an average speed of 325 Mbps, with peak speeds up to 1 Gbps. The carrier didn't specify the average and peak speeds of its extended range network.
To celebrate the rapid expansion of its network, T-Mobile partnered with Heritage Distilling Company and Jones Soda Company to release what the company is calling 5Gin and 5Ginger Beer, respectively.
The gin is named after T-Mobile's Ultra Capacity 5G service while the ginger beer's name references the more widely available Extended Range 5G. Limited quantities of both products will go on sale tomorrow, June 24, starting a 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT exclusively at t-mobile5gin.com. "Just like T-Mobile's 5G network, they're gonna go fast," the brand adds.
A bottle of gin costs $30, not including shipping. Of course, whether or not liquor can be shipped to where you live will depend on local laws. A six-pack of 5Ginger Beer will set you back $10 and is available to ship everywhere.
